An Agile Life

An Agile Life

An agile life is one that can easily respond to change. Where you’re not overly constrained by rigid planning, but can rather adapt and get things done in a way that fits your goals and the constant randomness of life.

  • Don’t set static rigid goals, keep testing and adjusting as you go.
  • Don’t keep trying to fix your weaknesses, play to your strengths instead.

Energy Vs Time

Time management is less important than energy management. Spend your best energy on your most important work, and everything else will follow.

The key isn’t to have some huge long term plan but to rather know the next vital few things you need to do to hit the goal you want to accomplish.

A Day’s Work

  • Don’t base your day on what you didn’t get done in the past. Base it on what you want to accomplish now, what will have the biggest impact now.
  • Set a weekly reflection for what went well, what didn’t, what you got done, what you want to do in the future.
  • Taking action is the best cure for analysis paralysis.

What Drives You

Know what you care about most, your “hot spots” in personal life and work life. Prioritize those over everything else, see how your time fits into those hot spots.

If you don’t set maximums and minimums on how you apply time to different areas, someone will for you. Put a maximum on career, a minimum on personal. If you’re not driving your day and time, then someone else will.

Rule Of 3

Focus on 3 goals for the day, week, month, year. Make them feed up from one to the next, and work them down when setting new ones. So the day goals fit the week goals, etc. Adjust as necessary.

Carve out a chunk of your life force for making improvements and leading the life you want to live.

The more you get in the habit of making time for what’s most important, the more you’ll get great results.

Tips For An Agile Life

  • Do the worst things first. Sometimes they’re the most important, and then you won’t dread them all day.
  • Find your “power hours” and focus on getting more of them in your day (see Deep Work).
  • Create a shutdown routine for the end of your day to help yourself unwind and get out of the work mindset.
  • Inspiration follows starting, don’t wait for inspiration to strike, just get to work and it will frequently follow.
  • When you do anything repeatedly, create a checklist for it to quickly move through it in the future (or to give to someone else).

Productivity Pitfalls

The Top five productivity pitfalls are:

  1. Analysis paralysis
  2. Do it when you feel like it
  3. Don’t know the work to be done
  4. Lack of boundaries
  5. Perfectionism

If you have motivation without technique, you’re just a motivated idiot. If you have great technique, but no motivation, you won’t accomplish anything. But if you have motivation and technique, you can produce great results.

Fixing A Deadline

When you fix your time, you’ll have more energy and sprint better. With an end in sight, we can push ourselves, when work is endless it becomes much harder to put in our best effort.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
